How to Become a Home Stager in 5 days?!

Have you always dreamed of having an exciting career in design but didn’t want to spend tens of thousands of dollars and years in training?

 

Are you like me? Watching all the design shows on tv and wondering, how can I do something that is rewarding, challenging, fun, creative, and here’s the big one……….get paid for it? Preferably, enough money to make a good living…..

 

How I discovered Home Staging

 

One day, my Mom was telling me how my cousin had hired a stager to come in and stage her home for sale. She said it sold in less than 2 weeks while others in the area had been sitting for months. Many of her neighbors had taken price reductions of ten to fifteen thousand dollars per adjustment while my cousin had only spent 2,000 getting her home ready and sold in 12 days for almost full price. I was happy for my cousin, but why all the talk about home staging?

 

Then the conversation took an interesting twist. My Mom told me that my cousin was thinking about becoming a home stager and that anyone could become a stager in just 5 days of training!!!

 

Could this be true? 5 days?? I could hardly believe my ears. Could I really become a designer of homes in 5 days? Sure enough, after researching, I discovered many “schools” delivering a complete ‘business in a box’ program for home staging and never looked back.

 

Today I am a successful home stager with a school of my own located in the beautiful town of Valencia, located in northern Los Angeles County in California. I have incorporated all of the things I thought were missing from other training programs and have what I consider to be the most comprehensive home staging program available. For a fraction of the time and cost of traditional design schools, you too, can learn the craft of home staging and be paid handsomely for your professional skills that help homeowners retain as much profit for their home as possible.

 

What can you expect to learn in a Home Staging Program?

 

The investment in home staging training can save you thousands in costly business mistakes. In a good home staging program, you will learn trade secrets that take years to learn and develop, along with staging specific business and marketing essentials that enable you to start a staging business immediately upon graduation. In addition, some programs teach space planning, color theory, design essentials, and have multiple in-field exercises where you will gain invaluable design and critical thinking skills. Small class size, and a format that allows you to ask questions, is also a plus.

 

Research is the key. Many programs are 3 days instead of 5, or only have 1 in-field exercise or assume you already have a design background and gloss over this area. There are online programs as well but if you are a person that learns by doing, then reading a book or watching a video about how to be creative, rather than experiencing the actual creative process, may not be for you.

Your Own Successful Home Staging Practice

Phillip was a successful realtor for over 15 years. He enjoyed his work, and attributed his success to good customer service. Phillip made it a point to coach his clients on how to sell quickly and more likely get their asking price. One of those ways was to make aesthetic improvements that would offer more value to their home and impress potential buyers, having read a few NLP books and realizing that audiovisual stimulation can manipulate the mind. His suggestions worked. Phillips clients often sold their homes twice as fast as others in their neighborhoods.

Realizing that his flair for creativity was an asset, Phillip decided to become certified as a home stager. He soon began making more money as he learned how to increase revenue with affiliate vendors. Since the main target market for staging is real estate agents, Phillip was able to build rapport easily with colleagues he had interfaced with over the years. He also built new relationships with companies that had a specific “Realtor Partner” marketing plan that encouraged strategic partnerships between agents and stagers. Phillip enjoyed diversifying his career, and the skills he acquired made him one of the most successful realtors in his market.

Linda P. was really impressed by improvements made in her friend Lucy’s home by a home stager. She was surprised that the attention paid to a few small details could create a totally different look and feeling in Lucy’s house. With all of the homes on the market, Linda, who had always dreamed of being self employed, decided to start her own home staging business. When Linda enrolled for certification with Kim Kapellusch she got more than she bargained for. Along with skills for residential decorating, design and redesign, Linda learned how to create a successful business. First, she learned what would be the foundation of her successful business: Writing a business plan.
